Need and Want

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you might find
You get what you need – Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

Aaahh…need and want. Which one comes first? We often constantly pursuing what we want and forget that, yes indeed, we actually have everything we need. When we want something that we can’t have, we often become disappointed. Well, maybe we don’t/ can’t have what we want because they’re not good for us, that’s why we have what we need instead. We are given what we need, exactly because of that very reason, because we (realize or not) need them! Yeah…a bit confusing I know…:-)

Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need (Regina Brett)
